he will not do any sort of no-fault eviction on my client and will be or abide by the rent control increases if this was a rental unit in a multiunit dwelling not in a single family home which has no rent increase limitations. >> glad stone. >> first of all, i want you to think about what mr. duffy just said he said that it does not look like a three-unit building, i agree, we do not main thayne that it is. the fact that there is no record at housing inspection division of inspections, is because it is not a three unit building. they don't inspect two unit. my client does not maintain so, i agree with mr. duffy, but it is a two unit building and it looks like it. >> i want to point something out in the statements made by mr. bascovich he leads you to believe that when he went down to the building department to get a seismic permit the building department said absolutely not. you have to verify and show us that it is a single family home and we will not issue the permits otherwise and we want to see a three-hour permit. that is not what happens and mr. duffy can tell you that the bu

that on february 5th, mr. zaches called me to discuss settlement and asked my client to make an offer. a couple of days later i sent him an e-mail stating that my client want to stay where the unit rent controlled without being evicted but he would consider making an offer. this was very difficult for my client to make such an offer and i also told him why doesn't his client make us an offer and mr. zaches refused and insisted that we make an offer. and again it was over after ten days that my client put forth an offer it was not 6 figures. and i do believe that they are trying to settle and work it out and i don't think that this should be a part of it, but i will state that if this owner has no interest whatsoever in evicting mr. hyman then he should be able to state on the record and stipulate as a condition to having these permits approved that mr. hyman's unit will remain as a separate rent controlled unit and that mr. hyman could not be evicted unless there is a good cause reason under the rent ordinance and the reason is not a no-fault eviction, he cannot evicted for an ellis act for ill

the key point is and the assess soar says it too. the key record is the 49 cfc. 2012, the client hires me and says that i want you to look at my building. now, i was the president of the structural engineers when the soft story program started in 1995. i was the president of the applied technology council when we wrote the city soft story ordinance, i know what a soft story building looks like and we brought the building inspector out and it is all glass. the back wall of this building is totally glass and it needs a steel frame. the problem is if i walk in today and file for a permit for a three unit building, and you can ask the inspector this, the people on the first floor will kick it back because that is what is there now, there are three kitchens they will kick it back and say pat you are wrong, they can look up the cfc on-line and they will say that it is a single family house, so you cannot get a permit on this building right now unless if you say three, they will say wrong and correct it down to one. there is 15,000 letters going out in the next three months for all of the buildi

that if he was successful with the board of appeal his client will initiate the ellis act. in any event, if this were to become a single family home, mr. hyman's unit would seize to exist as a separate unit, and if he is evicted due to the work, the landlord has no requirement to let him back in because his unit ceases to exist. if he let's him back in the client could increase the rent by any amount and has insin you ated that he would do that and pass on the cost of the renovation. and we recommend that there be an independent consultant such as a staff member of the department of building inspection to look to see if the building needs seismic work and if such intentive work is need and then they could give a notice of violation for the work to be done. >> some of the opposition has stated some facts which i think are relevant to the issues beforehand and they are not true. i do have with me declarations and evidence refuting those facts. it is just that if this board would like to see them, however, they are not pertinent to the issue at hand and with that, i would like to pass this

don't blame them. i would also like to point out that my clients for many years have had to go through the troubles of going to the planning department for merger applications, it is a lot of time, it is fees, it could take four months and the planning commission could decide to turn down a unit merger very easily and because they have a policy of trying to keep every unit no matter how big or how small, but especially the small ones in the rental market. we believe that this was an attempt to go around the planning department to go around the planning commission, to the building department makes the mistakes and the planning department makes the mistakes and m sanchez indicated that a mistake was made on the previous case. it is only when it is given the right information it does a much better job. if you are not going to disapprove this permit tonight, i certainly ask that you grant a continuance to allow an independent party to look at whether a seismic retrofit is needed and i ask that you ask the building department to take another look at the permit history. i ask that you ask th

a business profession office and as a result we called the client who sent us this. let me just state on the other subject that in my experience, when the back of the building department permit is stamped or written on, and the box that it is written on says planning department, it is the planning department box that it is generally a planner who writes it in there. and the planner had at his or her access, the complete building permit history for the site, it is on-line. and the building permit history for the site i think is looked at by the planner and it could have been looked at and it would make it clear that the existing use is not office, and the fact that the contractor puts the word office in the box called existing use, simply means that the contractors in most part are not as educated as architects and land use attorneys and many of you to know that when you put in a word in the existing use box you should be putting in what the legal use, not the use that he or she sees. unfortunately many contractors put in what they see in the existing use of an alteration permit. the f

in a minute and have i a new letter dated today related to the appeal my client filed with the planning commission's approval of the conditional use authorization for the project. so most of my comments on the substance of this project are set forth in the letter. letters. the new issue here is the appeal that my client filed last thursday. the clerk has rejected it this morning on the basis of a city attorney opinion. and i wanted to give this board the opportunity to reconsider that decision by the clerk. the city attorney opinion takes the position that because a planning commission decision to approve the conditional use authorization without first preparing a supplemental eir, as we believe is required, is not an appealable decision to the board of supervisors. we think that is wrong under public resources code second, 21151. the city attorney opinion does not address the primary question, which is what is the legislature's intent? as the supreme court has held in a number of cases the legislature's intent is that ceqa provides that elected officials be responsible for the environm

my clients that come in "does your hotel have grab bars in the bathrooms and phone jacks this the rooms," their normal reply is "no, we don't have that,." many elderly people, and disabled people, excuse me -- are prone to falls. with grab bars, it would be easier for them to hold onto, have something to hold onto, prevent falls, prevent injuries or death and yes, save a lot of tack pair dollars because people living in sr o's don't have lots of money or insurance to cover hospital bills and it's taxpayers that wind you have paying those bills. i know the owner of my hotel said they are not installing any kind of grab bars and until the legislation makes them and then and only then, they will put them in so let's make it mandatory and save lives while we do it. >> thank you ms. jordan next speaker? >>> i would like to thank the sponsors for this incredible situation that needs to change. i really appreciate that. i'm joy a bounds and i'm representing senior action network and disability and i would like to say that we heard a lot of stories today and i do not need

, the front steps going up that encroach on to my client's property and so that has to be addressed also before that permit can be issued. >> mr. soriano? >> i promise not to take all of the rebuttal time because i am not fearing anything new. it is nothing that deal with the specific permit. i do want to answer a question that mr. fung had about why are we not moving forward if there were exceptions for us to go ahead and do that. the reason is that the existing permit that is being held up by this appeal, it requires replacement of the stucco work and so we need to be able to address the stucco work before the installation of the windows while we appreciate the exception that was made it has not allowed the work to proceed. it is causing the work stand still and financial damages to the project owner. so just again, suggest that we have got revised plans that the city is calling compliant. and i think that we can address the notice issue the same way that we were going to address them if there was an agreement and i would ask the court to or the board to seriously put into the thought
